AFCFS: Funny video. I think one needs to try and keep an open mind while considering all the facts though. I'm not suggesting going out an smoking a joint for CFS. That probably would be about as smart as taking vicodin for liver pain. The original post was about juicing cannibis. Turns out one can heal cancer with oil. Please notice the picture of the tincture bottle from the early 1900's (in post #40, first link) exemplifies my point. Cannibis was used to treat all kinds of conditions before it was cultivated for more psychoactive effects rather than health benefits. I'm just putting up some links and hoping to learn a bit more about it. I have no doubt I would be spinning from trying the more potent stuff, but I believe the plant has been bred for very strong psyhoactive effects. From what little I know now, they are trying to produce better strains that have fewer or no psychoactive effects but are more medicinal in nature. Hey CFS-Fibro, thanks for the vote. Really enjoyed the first link, second one is a little dis-heartening. We are all guinea pigs unfortunately, we have a serious life threatening illness with no cure. Best we can hope for is remission in my mind. What about throwing a handfull of fresh cannibis in the blender or salad. Sounds easier. On another note..... I'm trying to get up to speed online first and hoping to find somebody else who is benifitting from something like CFS. I think his wife probably had something similar? Lupus? I'm guessing this unheated plant has some powerful antibacterial properties and maybe antiviral properties?? That might be best for my situation where I want to treat the liver and GI tract etc... I guess we are all ginea pigs and don't stand a chance if we can't understand our own bodies and gravitate to areas that might help us personally. I seriously doubt anybody would be in remission at all with out natural treatments or good intiution for what is helping or hurting..... Smoking a joint is not my answer, However, other forms of the plant with little psychoactive effects seems worth trying to figure out.
